Family fun promised at food festival

Marquee for children's activities

Butter making, bread baking, and the creation of super-potatoes are just some of the activities being offered to children at the Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival.

A kid's marquee packed full of stalls and activities is set to be one of the main attractions at this year's event, held at the Villa Marina Gardens on the 16th and 17th of September.

The new space has been sponsored by Robinson's, and will be run by Charlotte Mackie with the help of the Children's Centre.

She's had experience running a pre-school cookery club and says the marquee will allow children 'to have some fun' with Manx produce.

Tickets for the festival cost £4 a day - for information head to
